AWS Perl Lambdas - openssl issue

Ran into some issues gettng HTTPS to work with LWP in a Lambda. I blog about it here..

Amazon's assertion regarding the AMI that comprises the runtime for Lambdas is suspicious. If you launch the AMI they indicate is representative of the Lambda runtime environment you'll find that it contains openssl 1.0.2. But, actually inspecting a running Lambda environment reveals it is running version 1.0.1.

The dive into Perl Lambdas continues...mostly successful, but there are rough edges that even other languages also run into when vendoring libraries.
